Edit: Correction in red.
Update on this well’s status is HERE
Today I got a call from the District Manager of the Wichita Falls branch of the Texas Railroad Commission in response to the formal complaint I filed last week about the Barnett Shale class II commercial injection well near me.
See pictures and links to previous postings here.
The RRC reinspected the site and found numerous violations resulting in an order to shut the well in, fines and legal action against the operator.
Due to this complaint, procedures for RRC injection well inspections have changed. There will now be one trained person with direct responsibility for inspecting all the class II commercial injection wells in this district. That way the inspections will be consistent.
I should receive a copy of the inspection report tomorrow.
A small victory.
